Ch. de Fonbel is a very fine and elegant Grand Cru Classe from St Emilion, Bordeaux. Its prices are relatively low for a cru classe making it a real bargain considering it is owned and managed by Alain Vautier of nearby Ch. Ausone - whose wine-making abilities seem to be unrivalled on the Right Bank. The estate is consistently well maintained, ensuring quality and age potential; the wine is complex whilst boasting charming black fruit characteristics; make this an attractive and classy wine definitely worthy of its top classification within the St Emilion appellation.
